Should video go through the receiver?

    I have my DVD hooked up to my TV using component connection. I'm thinking of buying an AV receiver and surround speakers.

    Will/should/could the picture also go through the receiver, meaning that when I look for a receiver I should look for those with component in and out?

    The reason I ask is that I see many receivers have component in but not component out.

    My apologies if this is a silly newbie question

    The only reason to put the video through a receiver is if you have more video sources than inputs on the TV. IMO there is no real advantage otherwise of going through the receiver, and it will cost more money as you will need more leads.
    I think you can take it that if a receiver has component (or whatever video type) inputs then it will also have the outputs.

    agreed.

    Be happy and content that component out from your DVDplayer and component in to your display (TV) is the best.

    Choose and use the AVamp for the 5.1 surround sound.
